Q. How can I create different versions of the confirmation E-mail, with different text, without changing the "E-mail confirmation text" setting each time? I've looked at the Forms but there doesn't seem to be a way to change them.
A. In order to make changes to a form or make additional copies, you need to import a "custom" version of the form that actually has elements (the default forms are "canned" versions with no elements to edit). See the documentation for this here:
The samples normally pull the confirmation text from the setting you mentioned, but you can change that. Look for the Data Expression element with SettingText( "Main", "EConfirmation"). Replace that with a Text element for the text you want instead of the standard setting -- just Edit the element, change the Element Type to "Text", and then Edit Text to replace the expression with the actual text you want.
